Abstract: Most of the questionnaires used to measure quality of life are not covering most important areas for young people' in emerging adulthood stage. The aim of this paper is to present the creation procedure of a shortened version of the questionnaire for multidimensional examination of students' quality of life (MIS-QOL-S), its structural and theoretical validity as well as reliability. Within a three step quantitative approach, the MIS-QOL-S revealed a high reliability of 0.94 as measured by Cronbach's alfa, and 0.972 when measured by the split-half coefficient. The theoretical validity of a tool measured by a Pearson's coefficient revealed the results of 0,97 with MIS-QOL; 0,62 with SWLS and 0,693 with QOLS which proves reliability and validity of a crated tool. Based on its properties MIS-QOL-S may be used for research and diagnostic purposes in the fields of social sciences such as management, psychology or sociology as well as in medical science.
